And conservatives have no set of beliefs? Its brimming with pro choice gun control advocates. What I find most annoying is the condemnation of liberals or Dems without checking your own history of doing the same. Its almost hysterical that Callista Gingrich is ambassador to the Vatican. Doesn’t the Catholic Church take issue to adultery and divorce? Not for conservative Christians. I will be anxious to see how the next female running for president or Vice President is treated. Both Palin and Clinton received harsh criticism. Will women be treated harsher because of their sex or stance on issues? Much of the ridicule came from her limited knowledge of world issues. Similar to the ridicule Trump receives from his lack of knowledge of world issues and how government functions. The big difference is he has a huge amount of information at his disposal that he doesn’t utilize. President of the Virgin Islands? Lack of knowledge or understanding of the constitution and the separation of powers? Where is the support for Sarah Palin now? She’s been MIA at the Value Voters Summit. Where’s Rush or Glenn Beck?
Your interpretation of Michelle Obamas statement is quite different than mine. Since the election, abortion rights are back on the fast track to erosion. Birth control is no longer covered but Viagra is. Programs benefiting lower income working women and families are being cut. So how is Trump the voice for women or protecting women’s rights? It was a vote against their own voice. Birth control isn’t prescribed for a single purpose anymore than Botox can only be used for cosmetic purposes. Conservative women think it should become more difficult to report rape on college campuses? Michelle Obama didn’t state that Hillary represented all women, or that she herself spoke for all women. Her statement was based on the the two main candidates. Who will champion and defend women’s rights? Hillary or Donald? Wasn’t a similar argument used in support of Trump? A vote for Trump was a vote for gun rights, Christian values, and a conservative Supreme Court.
I never claimed innocence of Hillary. But boy did they play up her role as a public defender in her pre political life. She defended a rapist. Trump has defended multiple people of less than stellar reputations. He even defended and contributed to the Clintons. Lol. If you are referring to the tax laws Trump made use of , Hillary did vote and Bush signed into law (2002) the closure of the loophole Trump used in 1995. He wrote off the money the banks lost by his inability to pay the loans. What he did was perfectly legal. What angers the average person is rich people writing and passing laws that benefit the rich. You really think the tax reform Trump is pushing doesn’t benefit him or his family? Eliminating estate taxes most certainly will.
Mexican misinformation? I’ll quote him. “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” Better find a different example. He didn’t bully Meghan Kelly, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, to name a few. All his accusations of lies and fake news, yet no audio or video proof to support his claim. No written certified documents. He brought the heat on himself with his denial then admittance of the Comey firing. The accusation that Obama wire tapped him which led to the whole Fisa investigation. Those two statements led to the Mueller investigation. He can’t shut up. Over and over government officials state that they wish the tweeting would stop. How much chaos and anxiety have the military and Pentagon gone through? From the transgender tweet to the threats against China and N Korea. If the media misinforms or gets it wrong they are held accountable. Trump isn’t accountable. Sarah Huckabee uses the joke excuse and Trump pleads innocent due to misinformation given to him. He should fire those people that made him look like a fool. Why isn’t he?How is it that every media outlet is fake except Fox News, Breitbart, and the National Enquirer?
I hate big money in politics. Corporations are making policy. I feel like Fox News was elected president. Why does a lobbyist have a copy of proposed legislation before our ELECTED officials? I support the banning of politicians becoming lobbyists. I also support a moratorium on them from becoming a board member of a company that directly lobbies or does business with the government. I even changed my mind and now support term limits in Congress. Misuse or abuse of taxpayer dollars is still a swamp to me. So is the cost of inexperience and incompetence. What’s the tab right now on the travel ban? Emoluments clause? Attorney fees? Most people in Congress left lucrative jobs before being elected. Took a pay cut. I hardly believe they will end up on the unemployment line. How many millionaires or billionaires say I’ve made enough money I don’t need anymore. How many multimillionaire CEO’s are fired or forced to resign due to criminal or unethical actions or behavior? How many do time? Wealthy cabinet members do not ensure honesty.
The media suspects possible collusion with Russia. Intel knows the Russians meddled by feeding fake news and propaganda. Trump seems to have more faith in Russian denial than US intelligence. If he believes he didn’t benefit then prove it by preventing it from happening again. How many years did Trump keep up with the birther story? It will never die or be forgotten. Do you know how many times I’ve heard people say that Hillary should be in prison because they know she’s guilty. We have been reduced to locking people up based on a gut feeling or opinion? The Whitewater investigation lasted 4 years. Watergate lasted 2. We are only months into this. No criminal charges against the Clintons pertaining to Whitewater. Just Bill lying about sex. Over 20 years later the Clinton rumors still run deep. Bill redeemed himself by owning up to the charge and publicly apologizing. Nine years now for Obama and the birther issue as well as the Muslim question still floating out there. Please stop with the propaganda tactics of the Democratic Party. Have you forgotten about Troopergate in Arkansas? I total lie paid for by a wealthy Republican. I wont leave out the probability of money being involved in the election of Kennedy. Where’s the outrage over Russian propaganda? Or super PAC propaganda? Donald could be cleared of collusion. The questions surrounding him and Russia might have never gotten this far if not for his tax returns. But just like Bill found out, these investigations lead down many paths. I’m betting on a money laundering charge for Donald. He’s barely skated indictment before against state attorneys. Feds have a longer reach and more assets. Even if he’s cleared of any wrongdoing maybe a taste of his own medicine is a just reward. He can live out his days under a cloud of suspicion.
I appreciate the civil discussion. I have no illusions of any elected officials being without fault. Obama fell short of the promises he envisioned. He has acknowledged failures and so has Bush. Trump has already laid blame on Congress and none on himself. I’m saddened by the silence coming from people who hold themselves, family, and friends to a higher standard.
